    Couldn't have made a better choice

    Excellent venue, atmosphere better than a country club. Appetizers & main course was excellent ( large variety of main courses, appetizers and signature cocktails available) Facility can accommodate large or small weddings. Constellation staff was easy to work with when making arrangements. We couldn't have been happier with my daughter's big day.

    Just amazing!

    My husband and I recently got married at the Hort and I still feel like I’m dreaming! The venue was so beautiful, the food and service were amazing, and all of our guests had a blast! Gail was so great to work with, and all the staff at the venue on the night of our wedding were amazingly helpful and friendly. If you’re thinking of having a winter wedding, The Hort is your spot!
